PostSubject: Spotted or Childrens?   Sun Oct 05, 2014 10:02 am

I had got a couple snakes (a king and a python) from someone when they had to move. Awesome attitudes, not at all aggressive. But he didn'tell me much about em,  as far species. I found out my king is a hypo brooks, but I am still unsure about this guy. Any help would be appreciated.

Spotted (Antaresia maculosa) and Children's (Antaresia Childreni) are very closely related

Anthill (Antaresia perthensis) and Stimpson's (Antaresia stimsoni) are all the same genus

Based off your picture (kinda blurry) I'd say spotted - Childrens get to about 3' spotted up to 5'
